    So this is the problem. The rough in is 11” but there are no 11” toilets available here.
    Can I buy one with a 12” rough in and use an offset flange? TYIA

    Not the most elegant solution, but if the subfloor is in good shape, it should work out. Just know that if the offset on the flange is more than an inch, and you want the new rough in exactly at 12”, then you’ll have to be off a little to one side or the other as well. If the subfloor is in any way questionable, then take this opportunity to replace it and, at the same time, replumb in the soil pipe correctly.

    The subfloor is concrete so that won’t be a problem. I think the toilet i’m looking at it will allow me at least a 1/2”, so maybe 11.5”

    An offset flange is installed below the subfloor so if you have concrete, it's not an option -- unless you saw cut and jackhammer. That wouldn't be too bad really, if you don't have floor covering already down

    No idea if they have some sort of offset wax ring alternative. You could conceivably try to offset a standard wax ring but you would lose 1 inch of diameter in your waste pipe and disturb the flow of turds. Not elegant or preferred but MIGHT work leak free

    Thanks for the info. I just came across an article that lists three 12” rough in models that can be installed on an 11” rough in. I’m going to go this route. One of the models is american standard cadet 3 elongated. It has the 3” flush valve.

    I thought there were toilets with a 10 1/2 inch offset these days.

    So i bought these. The rough in holes are nine inches from the back of the toilet. I should be able to get it in,but it’s probably going to be a 1/4” from the wall

    We had a similar issue during our remodel.... my dad wanted to smack himself for not changing the rough in... he never thought of it when we pulled the toilet.

    Luckily we didn’t toss the toitlet and were able to re install.... I’d love a new higher sitting toilet but it’s just not available.

    Gold luck

    In Tijuana years ago people would take a dump in the urinals. It was a bit of a surprise when I had to pee.

    If you have 9” and can’t make it work with a rough hole you have a real problem.
